Part 12

After our respite, Caleb and I continued on through the city. We were going to go straight to the open market to purchase fabrics, but decided to duck into a bakery for some bread in case we were still being watched. 
The bread was deliciously warm and crunchy, and I took bites of it from a paper bag as Caleb and I once again joined the throng of people headed towards the market. 
Apparently, market-day was a pretty big deal here. It was every saturday, and some vendors even traveled for two whole days to sell their wares here. 

It was incredible. My jaw dropped as soon as I entered the market. The colors, the smells. Although my stomach was full of bread, I couldn't help but crave the pastries nearest to me. 

Caleb laughed as I immediately handed over two coins for a large cranberry-filled bread-thing. 

"Careful, Lena", he said with a smile, "There's a lot more to see".
